, primarily in texas and louisiana. and the monument behind me is a monument to the soldiers of the 62nd and 65th united states colored infantry. in fact, in january of 1866, the war was over, the soldiers of the 62nd were about to be mustered out at fort mcintosh, texas, and began talking around a campfire, how can we pass this legacy of learning onto the freed men back in missouri? and they began to talk about raising money. they pledged money. they gave money. and it was an extraordinary sacrifice. some of these soldiers, privates in the united states colored infantry, were earning as little as a $113 a year. some of them gave $100, almost a year's wages, to start this institute. they gave their money and their pledges to a second lieutenant, named richard baxter foster, who was a congregationalist minister educated at dartmouth. i don't know he'd ever been in missouri. in the summer of 1866 when it began to appear that lincoln institute might be established in jefferson city, a local newspaper ran an editorial opposing that move and expressed the fear that if jefferson city became th
